Interesting idea. Unfortunatly, we don't have the machinery in place with
CVS to do this in our current set up -- i.e. we don't have the ability to
restrict particular user's commits to a particular branch.

The PMC isn't responsible for doing releases, its only responsible for
making sure that things run smoothly. To be sure, things obviously haven't
been running smoothly here as they could have been -- though Sam has been
working on correcting that (+1!).

The person(s) that make sure that releases are running are known as "Release
Manager" or some such title (varies).
